Who goes to HUG camp?
H.U.G. Camp is where everyone is welcome!
Camp is for kids finishing 4th grade through those kids that have just completed their junior year of high school. We welcome new campers as well as returning campers.
HUG Camp is such an awesome experience that 2/3rds of our volunteer staff are former campers who love doing all that they can to ensure that our youth continue to enjoy camp for years to come! We definitely encourage campers to bring their friends too.
what is HUG Camp like?
H.U.G. is an overnight sleep away camp filled with supervised activities. At camp we take time to explore God, and there are also loads of creative and athletic opportunities to choose from, such as: archery, flag football, adventure course, wood working, volleyball, fun with science, dance, arts and crafts, tennis, ultimate frisbee, and much more. There’s plenty of beach time on our beautiful Lake Michigan beach with a shaving cream extravaganza on Friday afternoon for those who enjoy that kind of thing! Each evening is busy with camp-wide events including skit night, climbing Mt. Baldy (aka Tower Hill Dune), s’mores around the campfire, and the ice cream social, to name a few. Check our schedule to learn about a day in the life.
